Can you tell what type of whale is under the surface by the spray it produces above the surface?

Yes. For instance, the sperm whale will blow forward and to the left. The vapor will be about 6 feet tall. Right whales and bowhead whales will have a v-shaped blow. The right whales will be about 15 feet tall while the bowhead whales will be higher at 21 feet tall. Humpback whales have a low and wide spray. It may reach up to 9 feet. Lastly, the mighty blue whale has the strongest and most distinct spray shooting straight up to almost 21 feet tall.
